Beautiful Brides of The Gilded Gown 2023 – Part 1

While the year isn’t yet complete, the influx of stunning photos from our beautiful brides compelled us to offer a glimpse. Join us in rekindling the enchanting moments shared by some of our 2023 brides. Their sheer beauty and profound love continue to serve as a wellspring of inspiration. At The Gilded Gown, we humbly recognize our small part in crafting these picture-perfect memories for our brides. Anticipate more 2023 brides in our ongoing series, as we remain committed to sharing their stories.


The enchantment of bride Danielle on her wedding day has left us spellbound. For one thing, her gown showcased delicate lace appliques on ethereal tulle, and the flowing skirt was elegantly trimmed with horsehair. Plus, the serene setting of Foothills Farm in Cosby, Tennessee, served as the perfect backdrop for her nuptials. In addition, the exquisite floral arrangements, masterfully crafted by Cupids Petals, added to the splendor. Finally, the lens of Wendy Crowder Photography immortalized each exquisite moment, ensuring that every detail of the day’s magic was perfectly preserved.


In a choice that exuded elegance, bride Kelsey adorned herself in a fitted, shimmering wedding gown featuring intricate beading, 3D florals, and a tasteful slit. Indeed, against the idyllic backdrop of the Clinch River, Kelsey and her beloved Joel proclaimed their heartfelt vows, creating an unforgettable scene. And, the talented Emily from TMT Weddings skillfully captured every precious moment of this enchanting union.


Radiant Gilded Gown bride Ashley was glowing in her plunging V wedding gown. Truly, her lace bodice was perfectly complimented by her flowy A-line skirt. Ashley and her handsome hubby Kevin said, “I Do” amongst the towering oaks, and beautiful fields of Heartland Meadows in Knoxville, Tennessee. Their gorgeous photos are courtesy of Justise/Kasey Free Photography


Captivating Bride Jenna was absolutely gorgeous in her long sleeve wedding dress. She chose a clean-lined flowy skirt topped with a V-neck lace bodice. Jenna and her hubby Taner promised to love one another forever in Seymour, Tennessee. Their venue was a charming, Victorian-style farmhouse built in the late 1800s called The Ivey House. And, their photographers were Emily & Ryan Hull who expertly captured their special day. Jenna says, “I absolutely loved my dress. Thank you so much.”


Brittany radiated beauty on her wedding day, captivating everyone around her. Also, her exquisite bridal gown, adorned with lace, delicate 3D florals, and corset boning, added to her allure. And, a touch of baby’s breath tucked into her hair complemented her flowing veil perfectly. Finally, the skillful lens of photographer Kelsey Marie preserved every breathtaking moment, ensuring that the day’s magic would be cherished forever.


Gorgeous Gilded Gown Bride Sky chose a daring black ballgown with metallic green embroidery for her elopement. Sky and her handsome hubby Andrew had their ceremony at the historic Ely’s Mill in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Their coordinator was Effortless Elopements and their photographer was Sydney of Alisha Bacon Photography.


Bringing her wedding vision to life, Whitney, a radiant Gilded Gown bride, blended rich berry hues and verdant green for her palette. Meticulously selecting an intricate ballgown, she paired it seamlessly with an elegant beaded veil. Amidst the ambiance of The Views at Sunset Ridge in Cleveland, Tennessee, Whitney and Stephen exchanged vows, commencing their journey together. She says, “The Views at Sunset Ridge handled all the catering and decor as well. It was fabulous! Our flowers for the wedding party were done by Jimmie’s Flowers in Cleveland. Also, we had an amazing photographer, Paige Ivey Evatt!”


Lovely Gilded Gown Bride Nicole chose a wedding gown that featured an enchanting illusion bodice adorned with delicate appliqués. And, the gracefully flowy skirt danced in harmony with the beach breeze. Nicole and James exchanged their vows in scenic Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Picture Perfect Photography by Amanda captured their cherished moments, preserving the essence of their special day.

Going anywhere for clothing can be intimidating when you are plus size but let me tell you Diane made me feel beautiful the entire time.

I swear I could bring that lady everywhere to be my hype woman lol.
Now onto the whole purpose of being there. The dresses are of course beautiful and considering my size they had a good assortment.

The Anatomy of a Wedding Dress

Every bride dreams of discovering the perfect wedding dress that will make her heart dance on her special day. The magic and charm of a bridal gown lie in its intricate design and meticulous attention to detail. In this delightful blog post, we’ll explore the anatomy of a wedding dress, highlighting three key elements: the bodice, waist, and skirt. These components work together in a joyful symphony to create a breathtaking ensemble that enhances the bride’s natural beauty. By choosing the ideal bodice, waist, and skirt, each bride will find the dress of her dreams, tailored perfectly to her unique vision for her wedding day. Get ready to embrace the joy of finding that one-of-a-kind gown that will make you shine brighter than ever before!

The Beautifying Bodice

The bodice is the upper part of a wedding dress, covering the torso and typically ending just below the bustline. It plays an important role in defining the overall silhouette of the bride. There are various styles of bodices, each offering unique features.



The sweetheart neckline forms a heart-shaped curve over the bust, accentuating the décolletage and creating a romantic and feminine look.



The V-neckline elongates the torso, giving a slimming effect while maintaining an elegant and sophisticated appearance.



A strapless bodice reveals the shoulders and highlights the collarbone, exuding a sense of grace and charm.



An illusion bodice features sheer fabric adorned with delicate lace or intricate beading, creating an ethereal and enchanting effect.

Plunging V Neckline, Natural Waist, A-Line Skirt

The Defining Waist

The waistline of a wedding dress is responsible for defining the bride’s figure and creating an hourglass shape. Different waistline styles offer varying degrees of comfort and aesthetics, allowing brides to choose the most flattering option.

Natural Waist


This waistline rests at the smallest part of the torso, highlighting the natural curves and accentuating the bride’s waist.

Dropped Waist


The dropped waistline elongates the torso and emphasizes the hips, offering a more modern and fashion-forward look.

Empire Waist

Empire Waist

The empire waistline in bridal fashion refers to a style where the waistline is raised to just below the bust, creating an elegant and elongated silhouette.

The Cascading Skirt

The skirt of a wedding dress is the lower part that extends from the waistline to the hem. It plays a vital role in determining the overall style and movement of the dress, ranging from voluminous and dramatic to sleek and minimalist.

Sweetheart Neckline, Natural Waist, Ball Gown Skirt

Ball Gown

The ball gown skirt is characterized by its fullness and dramatic silhouette. It creates a fairy-tale-like appearance, with layers of tulle or organza cascading down to the floor.

Plunging V Neckline, Natural Waist, A-Line Skirt


The A-line skirt gently flares from the waist, resembling the shape of an uppercase “A.” It offers a universally flattering silhouette that suits various body types.

Scoop Neckline, Natural Waist, Fit and Flare Skirt

Fit and Flare

The fit and flare skirt hugs the body from the waist to the knees and then flares out, creating a sensual and glamorous look. It accentuates the curves and is perfect for brides who want to make a bold statement.

Square Neckline, Natural Waist, Sheath Skirt


The sheath skirt falls straight down from the waist, skimming the body’s curves without excessive volume. It exudes an understated elegance and is ideal for a minimalist or beach wedding.

All the Parts Equal A Beautiful Dress

A wedding dress is a masterpiece of artistry and craftsmanship, with the bodice, waist, and skirt acting as its key elements. The bodice embraces the upper body, while the waistline accentuates the figure, and the skirt gracefully cascades down, completing the ensemble. The combination of these elements creates a dress that not only flatters the bride’s silhouette but also captures the essence of her unique style and personality. Whether the bride envisions herself as a princess in a ball gown or a modern siren in a mermaid dress, understanding the anatomy of a wedding dress helps in finding the perfect gown that will make her wedding day unforgettable.
